Most of the projects that I have posted on LJ involved Sketchup. I find it very handy to verify dimensions to ensure that everything fits together. It can be a little frustrating at first but I found that Matthias Wandel’s YouTube tutorial very helpful. I think that this link will take you to his tutorial playlist.

Unless they provided the plans you are using in Sketchup format, you’ll have to redraw all or at least the parts you are modifying yourself. As long as its not too complex, that might be pretty easy for a beginner and may be a good way to learn Sketchup as well.
